Why Your Gutter Installers Matter

Gutter covers
Are your gutters installed correctly? Choosing the right gutter installers can make all of the difference.

Do your gutter installers matter? While you don’t need to become best friends with those who work on your home, it’s helpful to choose a gutter installer with experience. When you need to install gutters and gutter covers, here’s why you should choose a professional gutter company.

Should You Do It Yourself?

You mow your lawn. You fix the faucet. Doing jobs yourself gives you pride and increases your skills. You can add your own gutters and gutter covers to your home, but should you?

First, you need to choose the right product. If you’re replacing your gutters yourself, you’ll need to choose sectional gutters rather than seamless gutters, since seamless gutters require special equipment to create. This means that your gutters will have more seams or potential weak points.

You also need to choose the right gutter covers. Do you know how each gutter filter or cover works and which one would be best for your home? There are so many gutter covers to choose from, from foam inserts to mesh coverings for your gutter. Which one will work best to ensure that your drains don’t get clogged over time?

Finally, you need to ensure that installation runs smoothly. When you install gutters and gutter covers by yourself you build competence. However, you also need to be competent before you begin in order to install those gutters correctly. Did you know that gutters need to be installed on a slight angle in order to drain properly? How do you plan to ensure that your gutters don’t warp or sag over time? While gutters seem to be simple troughs for water drainage, drainage is a huge issue for your home. If your roof doesn’t drain properly, you can have trouble with your roof, siding, and your home foundation.

Choosing a Local Installer

Choosing a local installer has its benefits. With a local installer, you get the benefit of experience. Local installers understand the local climate and know how gutters experience wear in that climate. They can give you suggestions about the products that will work best for your home.

However, when you work with a local installer, you need to make sure that person has experience with gutters. If you hire someone who’s generally handy but doesn’t have a lot of gutter installation experience, you run the risk of having drainage problems simply because your gutters weren’t installed correctly.

Prevent gutters from getting clogged with debris. Choose the right products and the right installers.

Working With a Product Expert

One of the best choices you can make is to work with someone who’s both local and a product expert. By working with someone who knows gutters, you’ll keep your gutters running well in the long term. A professional gutter installer can help you:

  • Choose the gutters that are best for your home
  • Install those gutters properly
  • Add gutter covers that actually work
  • Add other gutter protection systems such as gutter heat if you live in a cold climate

Working with a professional gutter installer, you’ll protect your home’s roof, gutters, drains, siding, and foundation. The investment you make in a professional installation will pay off since you’ll have fewer repairs to make in the long term.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
